Gareth Porter wrote [in part] the following based on the works of two Thai historians: "After the United States began bombing North Vietnam in 1965, the North Vietnamese asked the Thai Communist Party to give high priority to attacking U.S. airbases in Thailand apparently with Vietnamese advice and assistance. The Thai Comunists refused, and the Vietnamese went ahead and carried out sapper attacks on the bases themselves without Thai permission." Is anyone aware of any U.S. documentation describing the actual level of snapper attacks upon the Royal Thailand Air Bases of Udorn, Takhli, Nakhon Phanom, Korat, Ubon, and U-Tapao during the course of the Vietnam War?
